About This Christian Ministry
Greetings in Jesus Name!!
The primary vision of this ministry is to preach, teach, guide and equip the children of God so that they will be deeply rooted and founded in the Word of God. While attempting this journey (with clear guidance and counsel of the Holy Spirit), I like Apostle Paul would begin by confessing personal inadequacy or incompetence towards this task. But thanks be to Christ Jesus, “our competence comes from God” (2 Corinthians 3:5) alone. We are at best clay pots, entrusted with a priceless treasure (2 Corinthians 4:7). Yet God can enable even clay pots to speak his word and glorify his name. “We do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5). The “surpassing greatness of the power” is from God and not from us (2 Corinthians 4:7).
The greatness of God is beyond human appreciation, comprehension or full knowledge. The riches of His goodness cannot be expressed or described by mortal tongue. We can only attempt to describe it, and our best efforts will be a puny approximation. At best we can only stand in awe, and exclaim with the Apostle Paul:
Romans 11:33-36 – 33. Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! 34.”Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” 35. “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?” 36. For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
It is our greatest desire that through this ministry, the Lord would take glory. I sincerely pray that you would have a blessed experience and that your walk with the Lord will grow stronger and stronger as days go by.
